Looking for Something
Author Archives: The Pet Psychic ®
Spending Sunday working. Book of pet psychic stories and articles will be out before Christmas! #happylife
I had a very hard time getting Easter to look at me for this picture. I just told her that her behavior is gross, so she was avoiding looking me in the eye. Easter loves to roll in poop! It makes her very proud. I asked her to please stop and to please tell me why.
She explained, “I love it. Smelling of poop makes me feel magical and like I am something bigger than myself.”
As you can imagine there are many things I could say to this, but for now I am just going to sit with that.
Seamora just said to me, “You haven’t known this, but I have lived a lot of lives as my best self.” Wow! Lucky her.

I was just hanging out with Ella and thinking about someone in my past when Ella said, “We could be best friends and not even know each other.” I asked her what she meant and she replied, “You can hang out with someone and not even know them.

My four dogs were barking out the front window. Not a wild bark just a unnecessary, “Hey, I see you across the street.” bark. I stopped them and then mumbled, “It’s all about being good…”
Hudson cut me off and says, “No that’s not what it is about. Its not about just being good. It’s about changing your behavior to reflect a calm and smart inner state. Just being good is just not doing bad. The reason to be calm and quiet is to find joy and peace in the moment.”
That is my smart boy! He has been listening and growing up!
When I sat down for a moment to rest, Easter came over to tell me, “Mom, I just found myself in a bucket of love.”
“What does that mean?” I asked her.
She replied, “It means that when you finally rest for a moment, I feel all the love energy that follows you around drop down around us. It also means to find love in the endless bucket inside of you. I am very knowledgeable on love. You have to recognize it to feel its power.”

Joie the Cancun Wild Iguana
First Published in the Santa Barbara News-Press
June 19, 2019
At a luxury resort in Cancun, Mexico, an iguana looked down at us with exquisite eyes from the pergola above our hotel room. When I asked her why she was up so high she answered, “I like to view of the ocean from up here. I can see where the other iguanas are. One of them picks on me.” We told her to imagine both her and that iguana at peace and to send him compassion. She thought about it but did not respond.
I love watching reptiles eat. They eat with an unusual presence of mind, savoring each taste with delight. I asked her if she would like a treat. “I love strawberries.” She replied That was an easy request to fulfill at the breakfast buffet.
We named her Joie after Dr. Joe Dispenza. It seemed an obvious choice since we were attending his workshop. Joie became more and more comfortable with each feeding. One day we sat down with her to learn more about her. We quickly learned she was female when she asked us, “How many birthdays have you had?” She didn’t mean how old we are. She wanted to know how many times we had given birth.
She got startled when someone walked behind her. I asked her why she was scared. She told us that she has seen other iguanas scooped up in nets and taken away. I explained to her that the resort staff was extremely compassionate towards animals, so they were probably re-homing the other iguanas because of overpopulation. I explained the difference between staff uniforms and the guests’ attire. She told us, “I have never known people to sing with their heart like you do?” She was definitely talking about my friend who is sings beautifully throughout the day.
Joie then asked, “How many skies are there?” Because we were spending a lot of time meditating, we quickly assumed she meant dimensions to the universe or states of mind, but Joie was being much more literal. She continued, “I like peaceful skies. I get scared of the storms. I have nowhere to hide.”
I looked around. She has plenty of places to hide. Joie then showed me a wild storm. She must be talking about hurricanes. I explained to her that people at the resort love animals and during these storms she should just run inside the hotel. The staff would be kind to her then. My friend Marna gave her directions on how to get into a nearby corridor that is contained but still has lots of plants. It would be a safe place for her to take shelter during a hurricane and extremely close to where she is presently living. I told Joie to go explore the area in the middle of the night or early in the morning, so she knows exactly where to go. She likes that idea and found great comfort in it. I also told her we were leaving and that she could manifest strawberries by looking at people and thinking strawberry over and over or while looking at the “peaceful sky” imagining herself happily eating strawberries. Of course, she could manifest this too. She manifested us.
We had this conversation as she feasted on strawberries, melons and a banana. Afterwards she stretched out on the grass and relaxed into her belly with her legs sprawled out. One did not need to be a pet psychic to see her gazing into our eyes with wonder. She is clearly fond of us and will miss us when we are gone. The feeling is mutual. Until we meet again, sweet Joie.

Many months ago, I fell in love with a painting at the Primavera Art Gallery.
It was thousands of dollars above my budget, but I snapped a photo of it anyway. The painting was of a small box shaped house that reminded me of a lighthouse. Since a young girl, I have always loved lighthouses. The idea that even in stormy weather a sailor could rely on a flashing light though the fog and the sound of mariner’s bell to alert them of home or rocky waters always calmed my restlessness. This house had its porch light on, another symbol to me of arriving home safely. Soon after I saw the painting, it started to show up in my visions during meditations. I would find myself walking up the steps into the house and then either upstairs or out the back door into mystical worlds or places to study.
One morning during my meditation, I found myself out the back door of the house. I had long thin legs. Effortlessly, I took flight. I was a white crane flying over the waves at the edge of the water. I could smell and feel the spray of the ocean and sense the wind touching every muscle and feather as I was lifted higher above the water. I flew through sunlight and puffy clouds in a world more vivid than this one, wishing it would never end. In a moment, I found myself landing in the arms of a man. I could feel his strong biceps supporting my bird body against his chest. He stroked my head and my back kindly. I pushed my head up against his cheek and wondered if this is how birds feel when they find themselves safe with a human friend. I looked down at my crane feet and they morphed into webbed ones. Was I now a white duck or a goose? My conscience rose from the depth of my heart. I did not want to trick this man into believing I was solely a bird. I flew from his arms and turned around using my will to turn me back into a woman. I felt the ocean fog around me and a white dress drape on my body. I wondered, “Do I now look like the ghost of woman from an old movie?”
Then I was aware of my breath, the blanket around me, and my chihuahua stirring to the rising sun out the bedroom window.
I went back to the gallery that day to visit the painting. It was thousands of dollars cheaper but still thousands more than I could spend. Months went by. Primavera closed. I wrote the artist telling her how much I loved her painting and made her an offer. The next day she accepted. I was thrilled. We became friendly via email both lovers of art and animals. A few days, later she writes, “I made a big mistake! I thought the painting was sent back… Much to my surprise it wasn’t. I had two pieces of the lighthouses and I thought the other one was sold. I feel really bad! I am sending you another painting of a bird at no cost. This is called “Crane Wife,” referring to one of my favorite folk tales of a Japanese wife who is a shape-shifter. The painting was hanging at the American Embassy in Kuwait for a couple of years, having been selected to be part of the Art in Embassy program.”
I was stunned. The house was a lighthouse after all. Aw, it’s gone. Did I read the email correctly? Is she gifting me a painting? Of a woman who shape-shifts into a crane? Words cannot express my sense of awe and gratitude.
The “Crane Wife” is hanging by my front door. She stands just outside a door at the water’s edge with the darkness behind her and light upon her chest. When I gaze at her, I am reminded of all that is safe and wonderful in this miraculous world.
“Crane Wife” and the painting “Before Point No Point” was painted by my new friend Treacy Ziegler. www.treacyzieglerfineart.com instagram @treacyziegler
